After completing the circular walk around Fenny and its marina, we decided to try the Merrie Lion
our boots were dirty, so after asking permission we were made totally welcome. Harry introduced himself as our host, guided us through the selection of drinks and showed us the menu.
The pub itself is a cracker, lovely old pubiness mixed with new gastro pub design, not pretentious but enough to give a chic air. Harry chatted as he went about his work always attentive and friendly. The food was great, the beer excellent, Harry is a diamond and The Merrie Lion is a must visit.

Popped in after a recommendation by my sister who has recently moved to the area. We arrived just before 9pm and were greeted by very friendly staff. Had the rump steak which was fantastic one of the best steaks we have had, cooked to perfection and accompanied by amazing chips and a salad. Really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. A lovely country pub serving fantastic food. Please visit and try their menu, its so important to keep these country pubs going, we will be back very soon, thank you for a lovely evening.

Nice local refurbished pub in the middle of nowhere! Nice if somewhat understrength beers. A check of a lot better since it was taken over by the community.
